Last New Year Resolutions-Goals- Accomplished?

I had so much going on last year that I didn’t have time to process much. Between work, kids, and recovering, it really didn’t give me a chance. Everyone in my family wrote on a piece of paper a goal for the year. The bigger the goal the better. My goal last year was simple,Continue reading “Last New Year Resolutions-Goals- Accomplished?”

Never Give up on what you love

“In the day when I cried out, You answered me, and made me bold with strength in my soul.” Psalm 138:3 This was when I was 7 months post op. I am now officially one year post op. This is a long post. I won’t lie, after you get hurt sometimes it is hard toContinue reading “Never Give up on what you love”

Don’t take things for granted

Never take anything for granted! No minute of the day is ever promised. So when you are struggling, remember someone else is wishing they could be in your position.

Life on crutches part one

The first part of the struggles with being on crutches was gaining strength. Trying to walk very far took a lot out of me. It was also a challenge getting up and down stairs, in and out of stores, and just doing regular tasks. I was blessed having horses so my upper body strength wasn’tContinue reading “Life on crutches part one”

Wreck that changed everything

I was driving my Chevy one ton truck as the sun was coming up when my life changed. My radio was tuned to K-Love, which is a Christian station. I had just got promoted at work about two weeks prior, and was headed to work. I popped up over a small hill and seen aContinue reading “Wreck that changed everything”
